S.O.S call... " help the internal displaced Baloch refugees in Pakistan".

S.O.S call... " help the internal displaced Baloch refugees in Pakistan".

To quell the yearning of Balochs to acheive the sovereignity of Balochistan which was illigally occupied by Pakistani Army on 27th March, 1948.... Pakistani army has escalated her attacks on Balocistan for the last 3 years. The blind attacks by Pakistani Army by land and air, forcibly 2 40 000 Balochs were compelled to abandon their homes from Dera Bugti, Kohlu, Marri valley and parts of Balochistan.

The Pakistani Army`s hurdle on borders blocked their ways to move to Afghanistan or Iran to get shelter which resulted that these refugees became internal refugees in Pakistan and were dispersed in the Pakistani Provinces of Sindh and Panjab.

The dispersed internal refugees are discovered in Dera Ghazi Khan and other parts of Panjab and in Sindh at the locations of Nasirabad, Jafferabad, Dera Allayar, Dera Murad Jamali, Sohbat Pur, Gorranari, Kotri, Hyderabad, Rohrri and other districts of Sindh including Jumma Goth and Akbar Khan Bugti Goth in Karachi.

The dilemma to these refugees was that Pakistani Government did not left them in peace, even in these different dispersed locations because they were harrassed by Police. Police forced the local Government Authorities and the common public to not help these displaced persons. Even the doors were closed for them get employment, education for their children and free treatement in the civil Hospitals, runned by local authorities.

Last year, their appeals for help were conveyed to the different humanitarian Organisations - all over the world - but those who are ruling in Islamabad, strongly forbid the Humanitarian Agencies to help these internal displaced Baloch refugee, because ....they were Balochs!!??!!



The situation of these internal displaced Baloch refugees - numbering more than 2 40 000 - scattered in Sindh and Balochistan is
going from bad to worse. According to a direct contact with the refugees by "Radio Gwank Balochistan", there are 8000 Baloch refugees in Karachi, living in the locations of Jumma Goth, Akber Khan Bugti Goth and other places.

One refugee, requesting to be ananymous due to the fear of his security, told Roadio Gwank in the interview that "We are forced to live under sky or the whole family in one room without any facility. We have no jobs, no income and can`t pay the high bills to pay to the doctors for the treatment of different diseases which are spreading" He added that, "almost all of us are suffering from intense infection in throats and the doctors have diagonised this disease due to the infection of Chemical Bombardments by Pakistani Jet-fighters and gun-ship helicopters."

Continuing his interview, he explicitly shed light to the miserable condition and said that, " We are losing our family members, children, old people and women in the diseases of Maleria, hepatis B, hepatatis C, Gastric - diagonised by doctors. We have lost our homes, property and all our belongings.As we are broken, it is urgently needed free medical camps and free medicine. Being without job, we need money to buy food because the malnutration is the other cause to the fatel diseases."

Requesting to not disclose the location from an other refugee camp from interior Sindh, a Baloch refugee explained that most of the diseases were spreading due to the unavailibility of fresh clean water. "We are obliged to drink the water which the animals use to drink." He appealed to the different Humanitarian Organisations, all over the world, to urgently give a hand of help to these refugee.

Some children, under treatement appealed for financial help and their parents expressed their worries about their education. "These displaced internal Baloch refugees need an urgent action to rescue their lives and a substantial programme to re-settle them in their own homes in Balochistan" said the commenter of "Radio Gwank Balochistan."
